    Signed up for this because of the locator/remote wiping functionality. But am exceptionally underwhelmed by the rest of the functionality. Really lame.

    I'll spend the money on apps and accesssories. I don't keep any info on it of much value to thieves,(who wants Auntie Barbara's hotmail account, anyway?) but the ability to brick it if stolen would give me a certain rueful satisfaction.

    I never had gps security on my laptop or netbook I don't see why all of a sudden why I would spend $100 Yr!!!! I look at this like a big phone. Windows and Android have programs that do the same thing for free!

    I already have a mobile me account so I do use it with my iPad. Good Reader is a great app and let's me access my backed up idisk programs from my iPad. It's a very efficient way to have access to a lot of your files without preloading them on the iPad.

    It's not all about "gps security"

    It's 20 gigs of hosting in the cloud, email addy, syncing contacts, emails, calendars, bookmarks ect across multiple devices and a photo gallery that has public and private options per photo album. The remote wipe and find my device features are nice also, but not the whole thing.

    I have it because I like that it keeps my mac, ipad and iphone all in sync plus it allows me one stop shopping for sharing pictures with my family across the US.

    No. It seems to me WAY too expensive for what it is.

    Dropbox, box.net or Google Docs (when Documents to Go for iPad ships) are pretty good alternatives if you don't need a lot of space.

    I use mobile me with my work. I love it I use the calendar and. Publish my iWeb. I use the mail and really all aspects of it. The iDisk can sometimes be a pain in the butt. But I like it.

    I love Dropbox.
    I have not used box.net.

    Is that more of a backup service?

    There are several free cloud desktops available - such as GlideOS. (IPhone and IPad use the mobile page that doesn't require Flash). Keep docs, presentations, spreadsheets, photos, etc, on the server for access from any computer (yes works cross platform). Calendar also - just like an in-box OS. MobileMe sounds like a major waste of money.

    I tried it, but it didn't offer much more than our Exchange server does. We are switching our company to Google Apps so it's even less likely I'll try it again.

    I keep reading people are not choosing MM because they can get the same services with dropbox or google docs. MM offers so much more, on top of the device syncing, 20 gb storage, 200 gb transfer allowance, photo sharing, remote wipe, backup and you can host your website there. I use google docs and dropbox but for me MM really is the complete package.

    I have been using MM for the last year to keep my laptop and iPhone in calendar and contacts sync but since I added my iPad I am getting a huge number of duplicates on my iPhone. I haven't had the time to figure out why so I turned off syncing for the time being and cleared my iPhone.
